Let's take a closer look at the ingredients

Regenerated Cellulose: Basically the stuff that makes up plant cell walls. It's like Mother Nature's way of saying, "Let's add some glam to the party!"

Glycerin: This is like the hydration hero of the group, keeping everything moist and soft. It's like the best friend who always makes sure everyone's skin stays supple and moisturised, no matter what.

Aqua: Ah, the elixir of life! It's simply good ol' water, making sure our glitter sticks and spreads smoothly, like a mermaid's dream.

Urea: This is a moisturising agent, kind of like glycerin's sidekick. It works together with glycerin to ensure your skin stays soft and smooth, like a velvet glove.

Styrene/Acrylate Copolymer
: Alright, buckle up for this tongue-twister! This is the magical glue that holds everything together. Imagine it as the invisible hand that says, "Stay put, glitter! We've got places to sparkle.

Propylene Glycol: Imagine a friendly wizard mixing potions in a lab. Propylene glycol is like the trusty sidekick of the glitter, helping it spread smoothly and evenly. It's like the magical conveyor belt that ensures your glitter shines in all its glory!

Adipic Acid/1,4-Butanediol/Terephthalate Copolymer: Now, this mouthful of a name sounds like something from a mad scientist's lab, but fear not! It's actually a blend of molecules that act as the backbone of our glittery friend. Think of it as the sturdy skeleton holding everything together, ensuring your glitter stays put and sparkles wherever you go!

Shellac: Ah, shellac! This ingredient is like the superhero cape of bioglitter. Derived from the secretions of the female lac bug, it's a natural resin that forms a protective layer over the glitter, keeping it safe from the elements and making sure it dazzles for as long as possible. It's like the magical shield that wards off dullness, letting your glitter shine bright like a diamond!

Pigments: These are like the artists in the palette, adding colours and shades to our glittery canvas. Think of them as the rainbow's best buddies, adding a pop of colour to your sparkle game.

A little more information

Our bioglitter is crafted in Germany, where every sparkle is born from a blend of innovation and eco-conscious practices. The magic begins with eucalyptus cellulose sourced from sustainable and responsibly managed plantations across Europe.

Imagine bioglitter as a tiny adventurer embarking on a journey back to nature. When it finds itself in the embrace of a natural environment like a field or a river, it begins its magical transformation.

In these enchanting settings, friendly microbes, like nature's little cleanup crew, start their work. They feast upon the biodegradable components of the glitter, breaking it down into harmless substances. The speed of this process is like a dance between moisture, temperature, and microbial activity.

If the conditions are just rightโ€”warm and moistโ€”the microbes throw a glittery party, and biodegradation can happen relatively quickly, within a few weeks. But if the environment is cooler or drier, the process may take a bit longer, stretching out over a few months.

Bioglitter is made from eco-friendly materials that break down naturally, just like your banana peels and coffee grounds. When you toss it into your home compost, it becomes part of a magical transformation, where microbes work their enchanting powers to turn it into nutrient-rich soil.

Unlike traditional plastic glitter, which lingers for centuries, bioglitter says, "Farewell, and thank you for the memories!" as it gracefully biodegrades. In just a few weeks to a few months, depending on factors like moisture and temperature, it transforms into compost that can nourish your garden and help new life bloom.

So, the next time you're tidying up after a craft project or a glittery celebration, feel free to sprinkle your bioglitter into your compost bin with a smile, knowing that it's on its way to becoming part of something beautiful once again.
